From 14 to 16 October, the DRAC Île-de-France invites visitors to discover architecture and its professions through numerous initiatives throughout the Ile-de-France region. Under the theme «Architectures à habiter», this 7th edition reveals inhabited places, from housing itself to the neighbourhood surrounding it, as well as how an architect conceives spaces where to live well.
The National Days of Architecture, organized by the Ministry of Culture and implemented by the DRAC on the regional territory, allow to reveal the presence of architecture in all territories, whether it is a question of major projects or everyday construction, through urban walks, debates, film screenings, exhibitions, site visits, workshops for young audiences, etc.
For the 4th year, the editions À Vivre organize «Les Journées d'Architecture À Vivre» during the National Days of Architecture to give the general public the opportunity to discover apartments and private homes, with their architects and builders.
Friday is a day reserved specifically for school students as part of the “Look up!” The result of the synergy between the Ministries of Culture and Education and Youth, this day outside the walls invites students accompanied by their teachers to discover their living environment in a new light and to learn to read architecture.
The program of this 7th edition, particularly qualitative with more than 200 events including fifty new participations in Île-de-France, will renew your view on the architecture that surrounds you.
